A Sight to See

I was very fortunate to have been given a private tour of the UVM Morgan Horse Farm located at 74 Battell Drive in Weybridge, Vermont. Constructed in 1878, this historic farm is a wonderful place to visit and to learn more about the delightful Morgan horse.

Per the Vermont Tourism Network:

“This working horse farm has been a breeding and training facility for Morgan horses since it was constructed in 1878. Now, a non-profit university owned, educational entity the UVM MHF stewards continuation of the breed and education about this important Vermont State Animal. The UVM Morgan Horse Farm offers guided tours, a video presentation and a gift shop. Visitors are able to enjoy some of the finest examples of this breed within our herd of 40-60 registered Morgan horses. Come learn about the Vermont State Animal, America’s first breed of horse – The Morgan Horse.”

Dates of Operation: Open May-October everyday 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.

Group Policy & Rates: Groups are always welcome. Group rate for 20 or more $4.00; fewer than 20, $5.00 adults, $4.00 teens, $2.00 children (ages 4 and under free).

A Beautiful Gait

I was mesmerized as this Morgan trotted by with its graceful, high-stepping gait. The rhythmic two-beat prance was truly a beautiful thing to both see and hear.
